Mark Schapiro, the editorial director of the Center for Investigative Reporting, will be discussing his book Exposed: The Toxic Chemistry of Everyday Products and What's at Stake for American Power. This book investigates the response of U.S. business to the heightening of environmental standards in the European Union. It reveals the significant expansion of intercontinental lobbying by U.S. industry and government and the global geopolitical implications of the U.S. retreat from principles of environmental protection. Mark will highlight how Americans are being exposed to an array of environmental hazards in personal-care products, toys, electronics, and foods, from which people elsewhere are protected. The Northern Alameda County Group's "Green Friday" events combine interesting speakers with potlucks; please bring a healthy snack or dish to share.
Time: 6pm.

Cost: Free and open to the public.
